A serious nut-case... I'm not even going to bother explaining to that guy how the economic climate of a country (when in turmoil) is usually the most powerful cause for political change, but maybe he can look at some historical cases...

Not all of us are Warmongers.
Some of us, like me, believe in International Diplomacy via the UN and the EU.
On the topic of Iran:
There was a letter from Iran which is being analyzed
A good point recently, If Iran gets the Bomb then other States like Saudi Arabia will follow suit.

Actually, I'm less convinced. It's been quite apparent to me having started here on a different magic carpet that quite a lot of HoC folks are willing to wield neg on newbies in an effort to scare them away.
On neg reps, all of the negs I get in this forum are from members who aren't part of the HoC, but perhaps as HoC regulars are aware that I'm not responsible for the content of bills and motions, they know better? It's hard to be certain with negs as if you're not a sub, you can't be certain. Obviously I can't stop it, but I can make it clear to everyone that the convention of this House is that differences of opinion should be raised through debate and not negs.

Nick I'd be tempted to agree with Adorno here. A lot of members act in a derogatory manner towards new members and those that don't just end up negging new members in an attempt to get them to leave the HoC. It's a very disappointing trend, but (and I have said the equivalent of this in the survey) there is no point in trying to recruit new members for them to come here and then just end up being treated in a derogatory manner.
I'm not sure if the observation about members acting in a derogatory manner towards newbies falls under moderation? I've quoted in TCIT in any case, though should it be a moderation issue, I don't know whether he'd deal with it in public forum or in AAM.
